Boundary County’s registered sex offenders

Sex offender graphicAt present, there are 33 registered sex offenders living in Boundary County, up six from January 2, 2023, when this list was last published. There are currently no registered juvenile sex offenders in Boundary County and none in Boundary County are identified as violent sexual predators. All are currently in compliance with registry requirements.

Sex offender registration in Idaho began on July 1, 1993. It established a statutory duty for persons convicted of certain felony sex crimes to register with their local sheriff. In 1998, the Legislature repealed the original act and enacted the “Sexual Offenders Registration Notification and Community Right-to-Know Act” to expand public access to central registry information.

The legislature finds that sexual offenders present a significant risk of reoffense and that efforts of law enforcement agencies to protect their communities, conduct investigations and quickly apprehend offenders who commit sexual offenses are impaired by the lack of current information available about individuals who have been convicted of sexual offenses who live within their jurisdiction.

The legislature further finds that providing public access to certain information about convicted sexual offenders assists parents in the protection of their children. Such access further provides a means for organizations that work with youth or other vulnerable populations to prevent sexual offenders from threatening those served by the organizations.

Finally, public access assists the community in being observant of convicted sexual offenders in order to prevent them from recommitting sexual crimes.

Therefore, this state’s policy is to assist efforts of local law enforcement agencies to protect communities by requiring sexual offenders to register with local law enforcement agencies and to make certain information about sexual offenders available to the public.

This information from the Idaho sex offender registry is provided only for the purpose of protecting the public. It is not to be used for the purpose of harassing or intimidating anyone. A person who uses registry information to commit a criminal act against another person is subject to arrest and prosecution under sections 18-8326 or 18-8413, Idaho Code.
